Basic riffle stacking techniques with a few other simple tricks is a better way to keep things simple and practical.

Simple and practical for what?


What for do you want to learn or use complex and advanced riffle stackings involving multiple blocking off, faros, seconds... ?

In the context of this forum, and the sub-context of this very thread........you really don't have a clue what you're talking about......do you?

Well, I could ignore someone with 1 post of experience but I'm very polite then here's a short answer.

I'll make it brief. You don't like me? Don't bother and ignore me. I'm not a guy who shows off but lemme tell you one thing, when I see the men who have honored me asking me to put them on the purchasers list, from now on I'll give less than a tiny **** about denigrations coming from unknown people hidden behind anonymous Internet connexions.

And, by the way, the list is almost closed now. Then, denigrate, insult, bump or despise me as much as you want. I just don't care.

Have a nice day.


???

Oh well, I didn't post here to insult or denigrate well established and respected members...

I then guess I'm not welcome here and will then withdraw back to the anonymity of the Internet...

It's $2,575. It's really professional material you know... Of course it's OK for a discount. Just because it's for you I'll cut off down to $2,525.



I offer you $6 for the book , which is the same price as the classic books "Faro Shuffle" and "Faro Notes" by Marlo.


Anything over $6 is not worth the money , no one will pay more than that for a book written by someone unknown in the history of 'Faro Shuffle' publications.


If you accept my offer send me an email or call me.

If these two booklets can be of any use for you in actual play, I'm very glad for you.

BTW, I can't put you on my list, because only known people are accepted.

Didn't know it was only for people you know , sorry for the confusion.

Just a suggestion , if you are selling only for people you know it would be easier if you send an email directly to those people you know. Makes no sense posting in an open forum that you are selling something only for a few people you know. Sorry but it sounds like you are trying to get attention from the people you don't know. LOL


I would buy the book if I knew your qualifications but I will have to pass , thanks anyway

By the way:
It seems that I don't get the booklet from Arnold. But I am absoluely interested in the topic of stacking (because there is not much material out there to read about this topic).

So perhaps someone can order two and sell me a copy. Smile

BigThanks from BigSmile... Smile

I've just sent you an email.

Guys, I don't spend my time on this forum! I usually answer every mail but it takes sometimes half a day. Be patient...

I like the push through and the triumph shuffle because besides being false shuffles that can do the job they can also be used to cull and stack poker hands.

The triumph suffle is a great shuffle for culling and stacking hands for magic because it is a false shuffle and it helps to solve the culling and stacking deep problems that were talked about in the Jack Merlin book and a pack of cards.

Expert at the card table and the card magic of LePaul have some great information on the classic false shuffles and cuts.

The triumph shuffle is in the classic book the stars of magic. And there is some great information on culling and stacking using a push through and block transfer technique in the Vernon/Erdnase copy of Revelations!

I hope this helps.

Sort of a silly question, but those mainly concerned to "real work", do you practice only using copags/kems, since that's whats used in a game?

Yeah, it is a silly question, because the world is large and wide, and there is no home game police to knock the bicycle cards or the drugstore pack out of our hands and replace them with copags and kems because "that's whats used in a game".

Magicsavant, splice

I'm talking about my experience here in Europe (France, England or Spain). I play cards for several decades now but I have never, I write NEVER, seen a Bicycle or Bee pack in a game. USPC cards are not that common here. Of course, many Magicians use them and since the Internet age it's now possible to get them at nice price but if you pay attention to details, you'll see that many European guys use local brands very often (Hollingworth, Green, Tamariz, etc.).

It's the same in private and friendly games. We use Fournier, Grimaud, Waddingtons, Carta Mundi, Piatnik, Modianos... As Splice say, the world is large and wide but what surprises me is how often american guys just think that only USPC cards exist!

Since the big Internet Poker buzz, USPC cards are spreading very well to be honest. In private games we find now WPT model for instance. Sometimes we have to play with the deck provided with the chips case of the game host and more than often it's an awful Chinese imitation of a BEE deck.

In more "serious" games you can find plastic cards. Here, in England, rarely you'll see a game (casino, club, league, etc.) with paper cards. But quality is too often very poor. Copag are common but often, again, we have bad Chinese material! For the last 4-5 years, all private games I played in France were using plastic cards. Copag and Fournier mainly. You can find Piatnik once in a while. I have never seen a Kem deck in play! Well, I've seen many horrible imitation though Smile.

Young guys use what they see on TV shows, then in friendly/mates games it's possible to find USPC material, mainly WPT cards.

The average people don't like plastic cards. Hard to shuffle, not easy to deal. Heavy and slippery. But they're more and more common. Bad paper cards last 1 or 2 games only. Personally I practice with plastic cards a lot. 99% of the games I play use plastic cards. There are many brands and many types and it would take 2 pages to describe'em. I really hate Kems! Fortunately not many people use them here.

Some move are easier with plastic cards. Unfortunately, very few decks have an overall back design, 7-8 brands I'd say. Be careful when you're dealing seconds Smile.

Arnie is right. I was surprised when I moved to New Zealand and discovered Bikes were rare unless you went to the huge chain store and bought them packaged with poker accessories. most people here use really crappy paper BRIDGE SIZED cards from China.

Yes the only place they sell them here is the magic shop.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Bridge sized!

Well, I should not complain then...

I second tommy. France, Spain, England, etc. in many countries I've been the places where to find Bikes are mainly magic shops.

tommy, what brand do you use in your place?
